This kid approved recipe has no added sugar and no grains. It is full of superfood ingredients like goji berries, chia seeds and cacao to fuel your child! It is also super easy to make!
It has a much more ‘tart’ flavour than many fruit snacks. If you think it won’t be sweet enough for your child, you can swap some of the cherries for medjool dates. I like to keep a lot of diversity in the flavours I give my children, so I like the tartness.
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raw cacao
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup cacao nibs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup coconut oil
Add all the ingredients to a high speed food processor and mix on high for about 10 seconds, until the ingredients come together like a dough.
Pour the mixture into a deep baking tray (I used a 23cm x 23cm x 4cm).
Press down mixture into the tray
Place in fridge for 2 hours
Cut into appropriate size pieces for your children.
